Extended Gameplay For Far Cry 5 Reveals The Local Resistance Of Hope County


Sandwiched between Beyond Good & Evil 2 and Starlink: Battle for Atlas – a new toys-to-life actioner – on Ubisoft’s E3 2017 docket was Far Cry 5, the open-world sequel set within the fictional realm of Hope Country, Montana.

Pegged for a release in February 2018, Far Cry 5 is the follow-up to last year’s prehistoric Primal, and finds players fighting to liberate a small backwoods town from a cult of religious zealots. So far, so Far Cry. Building on the momentum from last month’s original reveal, E3 2017 brings with it an extended gameplay demo for Ubisoft’s sequel, which introduces Grace Armstrong, a hardboiled sniper, and Nick Rye, a maverick pilot with enough firepower to tear up the countryside from the skies. There’s also Boomer, an angry dog that can be unleashed upon your enemies.

Yes, you’ll be able to enlist specialized animals to help fight for the resistance in Far Cry 5, while today also brought confirmation of the game’s MT Collector’s Case, the details of which can be found on the Ubisoft Store. Further details on the Season Pass will also be shared closer to release but in the meantime, you can take a deeper dive into the zany madness that Ubisoft is rustling up via the gallery of screenshots, below.

Here’s an extract from the shooter’s official logline:

Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance. The fight against the cult will take players to unique locations throughout Hope County that provide different gameplay experiences. During their journey, players can fly planes to engage cult forces in aerial dogfights across Big Sky Country.

While tracking down cult members and gathering resources for survival across farmland, forests, mountains and rivers, players can get behind the wheel of iconic American muscle cars, big rigs, ATVs and boats. Vehicles also provide refuge when under attack by animals or as a way to quickly escape when things don’t go as planned.

Ubisoft will cordially invite players to step foot in Hope County, Montana when Far Cry 5 launches for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on February 27th, 2018.
